Good God Almighty
He’s a Need Meeter!
Psalm 23:1, Isaiah 58:7-11
When we face difficulties, we may wonder if God is really good. An eternal perspective changes that. King David gives an example of this in Psalm 13. In the first four verses, he laments his situation but things change in verses 5-6 when he begins to focus on God: “But I trust in Your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in Your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for He has been good to me.”

- Trust Him for one day at a time. Our Shepherd is always here for us. Isaiah 58:11: “The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.”
